Applying Behavioral Economics for Improved Program Delivery and Greater Impact
Tuesday, April 3, 1:00 – 2:00 PM ET
Presented by CFED and NeighborWorks America
Over 220 attendees joined us for a discussion of how principles of behavioral economics can be applied to enhance the effectiveness of programs for assisting low-income clients at tax time. Tax time presents a unique opportunity in the calendar year to help low-income clients bring in much-needed cash through tax preparation programs. Mindy Hernandez, a CFED 2010 Innovator-in-Residence, worked with the Campaign for Working Families and Foundation Communities during her innovation year to incorporate behavioral economics interventions into tax preparation and assistance programs for low-income, self-employed clients. Presenters discussed the implementation and results of the projects.
